Edinburgh Fringe – Mastering the Festival

WHAT IS IT? A group session led by HighTide’s co-founder and Edinburgh Fringe veteran Steven Atkinson discussing all aspects of performing at the Edinburgh Festival. HOW WILL IT WORK? Steven will discuss his experiences of working at the Edinburgh Festival for more than ten years through a discussion of his shows, including the Fringe First winners Lidless (Underbelly) and Educating Ronnie (Assembly). You will have the chance to ask questions throughout and Steven will tailor answers for actors, writers, directors and producers. WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? Steven will help you to make the most out of the brilliant and challenging largest arts festival in the world, and help you to get your work seen and transferred.
